Trump Taps Rep. Tom Price to Lead HHSDonald Trump has picked Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) to lead the Department of Health and Human Services, The New York Times reports. Price, a vocal critic of the Affordable Care Act, would likely be central to Trump’s plan to repeal or change the health-care reform law. A former orthopedic surgeon, Price has recently criticized the ACA for its rising premiums and cuts to health-care options. He has suggested alternative bills while in Congress, although it is still unclear how Trump plans to act on the Affordable Care Act. β€œEither Obamacare will be amended, or repealed and replaced,” Trump told The Wall Street Journal after meeting with President Obama this month.
